Seeded by the Green Mountain Bros. at bt.etree.org, July 2007.
- Most of "Promised Land" is missing with cuts at the beginning and end. Also the mix fluctuates and is largely bass and drums.
- First few minutes of "They Love Each Other" are absent.
- Popping/distortion on master DAT during first 1:20 or so of "Estimated Prophet" attenuated with manual redrawing of waveform. Some audible artifacts remain, though the end result is an improvement. These are on the master DAT and all previous circulating sources and are not related to transfer. A few similar sounding pops were present at the end of the track preceding it (IMHBTR) and on previous circulating sources (though not commented on in the db) and were also attenuated.
- Reel flip in Drums crossfaded.
- High pitched whine @ 15600 KHz (inaudible to probably >90% of Jerry-experienced deadheads, but not their kids/grandkids) was attenuated using Waves Q10 Supernotch on 24/96 fileset.

Subject: Good but not great for '77
Subject: Excellent show, easily the 2nd best of the run
The second set starts with a rocking Bertha>Good Lovin. It kind of surprises me sometimes how fresh they kept this combo, and this is one of the more interesting ones. The meat of the set though is the Estimated>Eyes>Dancin. Estimated gets into a nice bubbly lather, but Eyes gets some serious jamming going with a beautiful drawn out intro and rocking closing half from Jerry. Definitely one of the strongest versions of the fall. The Dancin is no 5/8 or 10/11, but very, very satisfying, working some nice groves and going pretty deep. The rest of the set is might fine as well, with solid versions of NFA and Black Peter.
Though 10/2 gets all the attention from this run, please don't overlook this gem. In some ways, this show is a bit more consistent and enjoyable, even if 10/2 has more of the big time jamming and letter perfect segues.
Subject: rocked out bertha
This show delivers- Bertha is really strong if you like something different
Subject: Best Minglewood
1. The intro. There isn't one. Bobby just launches it.
2. "Sometimes I am; sometimes I ain't." Way better than "some says I am; some says I ain't," which Bobby introduced in 1978 and never left. The personal manic-depressive partially insane soul baring is truer to the story and a lot more dramatic.
Great to hear this clean, dynamic version of the show. I have a low volume multi-generation analog tape which flattened everything and didn't it justice. (I was there for it, too, but hey - don't remember much. The Paramount was a good venue, though.)
Subject: Natural - 77 Worked the tour
It was a pleasure to be a part of. I miss those days of magic. We didn't know what we had in our hands regarding the forumula of backstage comradarie. I commend John Scher for hiring Cy Kocis to be the provider, along with Mo Morrison to be tour manager. These were the days. Mostly I commend Cy for his hard work and his character. Backstage touring needs a master/healer. He is and was the best. We loved the band and they knew it, vice versa. You too! >Kid Candelario who was the Champion Ball Buster nver got over. Steve Parrish was a great help. Dan Healy was the genius that never got enough the credit. Thank u Dan. We mis u Jerry and all the crew. ;-)
Subject: Wow Music Music and the Jam Never Stops!
Agree with all the other comments as well in terms of energy a little unusual for the period. I also love this PROMISE LAND but unfortunately cut from this version, also my all time favorite version of this song. The banter before the Bertha is funny as Phil tries to convince on Good Lovin but Jerry will not have it....
Subject: A PARAMOUNT SHOW!
Subject: I signed up just to say thanks for this awesome show!
This show kicks Cornell's ass. It has a much fresher sound and a more energetic performance. October '77 is my favorite month of Dead recordings.
Subject: Right ON.
Subject: High Energy Even For 1977
Five stars with a bullet in a five star year!
